Moving pre-dawn display at Saint Bernards Church

St Bernards 6am 01012015It a pleasure this morning to hap across this simple and moving memory of Father Freed’s life.

Our community morns with all of you who were members of Father Freed’s flock.

My hope for 2015 and beyond is this community will work hard to turn the tide of violence and the clear paths that lead to it.

We can do this.  It’s going to take some creative thinking and work, but things will get better.

Especially if we begin to focus on all lives that are lost to include our most prominent community members and those lost to violent crime, but also eminently preventable losses such as unnecessary traffic deaths and injuries,  lives and souls lost to addiction, and lives and souls lost to inadequate shelter, food or health care.

Contemplative New Year Eureka and thank you again Father Freed for all you gave to our community.
